Arlington Parks’ New Mobile Litter Unit Keeping City Clean

The City of Arlington has introduced a new program to help fight litter and beautify the city. The Mobile Litter Unit is a trailer loaded with community clean-up supplies that is available for organizations, businesses and neighborhoods to reserve free of charge to aid in beautification of public spaces and neighborhoods. This MLU program will assist in the strengthening of our neighborhoods, beautification of right of ways, parks spaces and promote the efforts of Keep Arlington Beautiful.

“Keep Arlington Beautiful and the City of Arlington are working together to help reduce litter. This new program will allow the community to pitch-in and make a difference”, stated Gary Packan, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation. Now neighborhoods, Boy Scouts and social organizations can plan volunteer events and we are ready to provide support,” added Packan.

Funding for the MLU was provided by Arlington Water Utilities through a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality approved Supplemental Environmental Project.
